oh, there once was a lady, and so i've been told,
whose lover grew weary, whose lover grew cold.
"my child," he remarked, "though our episode ends,
in the manner of men, i suggest we be friends."
and the truest of friends ever after they were-
oh, they lied in their teeth when they told me of her!

--dorothy parker, "fable"

no one can ever express the exact measure of his needs, or conceptions, or sorrows. the human language is like a cracked kettle on which we beat out a tune for a dancing bear, when we hope with our music to move the stars.

--gustave flaubert, madame bovary
